Thanksgiving in Flint

Mom and Briggs decided to come back to Texas for Thanksgiving. They probably haven't been here for it in about a decade. They have a little house they rent while they are here so all of the daughters and their families were able to come out. We each brought something and Mom and Briggs provided the main course.

Uncle Paul and Olesya

We used the kids arts and crafts for decorations on the tables. This is Sophie's turkey hat.

Maw Susan and Paw Briggs and almost all the grandkids. Levi was actually spending Thanksgiving with his dad and sister, so he couldn't make it.

Happy Birthday, Paul

Poor Paul. His birthday was very un-exciting. We've been so focused on the adoption that I nearly forgot about it. On top of that, I was sick too. I did manage to fix him some Chinese food.

We let Sophie try out her "cheat" chopsticks.
And I got his favorite dessert from Le Madeline, Fruit Tart. Sophie really liked it too.

His real present is waiting very patiently for us in China. Soon, Logan, soon!
